As you may know, Camp Wingate*Kirkland has been actively involved with Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) for the past few years. We are a proud sponsor of their FARE Walks for Food Allergy, Summer Camp Safe & Sound Campaign and their Teen Summit to be held November 13-15 in Washington, DC.

On October 25th FARE is holding a walk in Ridgewood NJ and 2015 camper Tobey G. has put together a Camp Wingate*Kirkland team! Please see his message below.

2015 Camper Tobey

Hi Everyone,

I am counting the days till W*K 2016!

As you know a bunch of kids at W*K have food allergies. Every year I walk in the FARE Walk for Food Allergy, to help raise awareness and to support Food Allergy Research & Education in its mission to find a cure for people with food allergies like me.

I’m building a NJ/NY Camp W*K team to walk this year, and want you to join!

This fun charity event brings together people with food allergies and their friends and family. The steps you take will have a lasting impact. Also, it would be a great way for all the W*K campers/staff in New Jersey/New York to meet up!

Here’s how you can get involved:

1133 East Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood NJ 07450

Thank you, in advance for supporting the W*K Team and the 15 million Americans with food allergies by registering or raising funds for the 2015 FARE Walk for Food Allergy!
